Make sure that you attend your dentist at least twice a year. Having a professional dental cleaning at least two times a year can improve your overall oral health. Those who practice good oral hygiene regularly at home with brushing and flossing usually do not feel discomfort during a cleaning. But those who have failed to follow their oral health habits may feel uncomfortable and sensitivity during the dental cleaning. The dental specialist can use a painkiller before the cleaning to ease any discomfort.
Our dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are done by registered dental hygienists. To complete the dental exam; your cleaning process will include the following:
Eliminate tartar: Tartar is a hard plaque that can be found on the tooth cover both below and above the gums. It can only be extracted with special dental tools.
Eliminating plaque: It is a sticky colorless film containing food particles, bacteria, and saliva. If plaque is removed, the bacteria will produce poisons that can infect the gums and possibly causing periodontal disease.
Polishing Teeth: Mild polishing eliminates stains and marks that remain in the teeth. When this happens, you can now enjoy that clean teeth feeling.
